Maxine C. Aston,: The Asperger Couple's Workbook : Practical Advice and Activities for Couples and Counsellors
Asperger Syndrome (AS) can affect some of the fundamental ingredients required to make a relationship work, such as emotional empathy and communication. Maxine Aston, author of Aspergers in Love, has created this workbook to help couples where one of the partners has Asperger Syndrome deal with the difficulties that may arise in their relationship. With candid advice, activities and example worksheets, the book explores a variety of approaches that couples can use to counteract these difficulties. Whilst acknowledging that all relationships are different and each needs to be viewed as a unique case, the author identifies specific issues that can be problematic in an Asperger relationship, such verbal and non-verbal communication, sexual issues, socializing and parenting, and comes up with simple and effective ways of addressing these issues. This practical book is designed for use by couples and families affected by AS, either on their own or in conjunction with a counsellor. It will also be of interest to couples counsellors, or other professionals working with people with AS.
For twenty years, Father Gregory Boyle has run Homeboy Industries, a gang-intervention program located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles--also known as the gang capital of the world. In "Tattoos on the Heart," he has distilled his experience working in the ghetto into a breathtaking series of parables inspired by faith. Bart Dawes is standing in the way of progress. A new highway extension is being built right over the laundry plant where he works and right over his home. The house he has lived in for twenty years where he The Asperger Couple's Workbook : Practical Advice and Activities for Couples and Counsellors free ebook has made love with his wife played with his son . But before the city paves over that part of Dawes life, he s got one more party to throw and it ll be a blast . Using case stories and recommendations based on the authors' research, this book helps teachers to think differently about the so-called "unusual, repetitive, or severely limited activities and interests" (Autism Fact Sheet, 2007) of children with autism.Many individuals with autism have deep interest in one or a variety of topics. Some interests are commonly seen across individuals with autism, others seem more unique to an individual person. While conducting their research in schools, the authors observed that plans and goals for students with autism are developed for the purpose of 'extinguishing' or severely limiting these areas of interest.From their observations, the authors concluded that if educators could reframe 'obsessions' as fascinations, passions, interests, or 'enthusiasms' and see these areas as potential tools for teaching and supporting, educators and their students with autism may potentially be more satisfied, calm, and successful. "Just Give Him the Whale!" was written to help teachers and others working with children with autism understand and work with children's fascinations instead of trying to change them.
